Re: Expand glossary in current font and size

Hi Phillip, Thank you, that's extremely helpful, especially the idea of a style with no attributes. Am I right in thinking that if I have a style with the same name in my document, the expanded glossary items will take on my document style's attributes? Or would I have to wait until I have inserted ...

Table question

Hi, (BTW, thanks for Nisus: I'm beginning to really love it, and appreciate all the work that has gone into it.) When I create a new table, the first row of the table ends up with some space above it. As an example, here's a new document with two columns to demo: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h0zhx2m45q...

Re: Expand glossary in current font and size

Thanks for both answers, very helpful.

QuickFix is probably the way I should do this. The difficulty is that I'm working with a very large number of cuneiform signs. Is there a way to bulk input QuickFix items? Or does it have to be one by one?

Expand glossary in current font and size

Hi,

Is there any way to do an Expand Glossary command to just insert the Unicode characters, i.e. without changing the font or font size?

Cheers,
Lyndon

Re: Error on first new file (language issue)

that gave me the clue: I changed the keyboard layout from a bundle to individual files in the /Library/Keyboard layouts/ directory. Now it works. So Apple's API presumably isn't the one they are using themselves…

Thanks for working it all through, much appreciated.

Re: Error on first new file (language issue)

I can change the spelling dictionary and other settings (tried it for British English and for one other) and those changes are retained correctly.

Re: Error on first new file (language issue)

And final bit for the mo: with that suggestion, Nisus still loses my keyboard preference every restart. So it forces the British language option (and my Transliteration language) to use the British keyboard, no matter what I have set myself (what I set works as long as I don't restart Nisus, so it's...

Re: Error on first new file (language issue)

@phspaelti Good idea. If the British keyboard is in the System Preferences list of input sources, I get no error. And Nisus switches to that keyboard when it starts up. I'd have to say, it does look like there's something hard-coded? Or at least stuck in the preferences and not visible to me to alter?

Re: Error on first new file (language issue)

That sounds like a good idea, but unfortunately it doesn't work :-(

Error on first new file (language issue)

I have a customised keyboard setup to help with transliteration, so in Nisus Writer Pro preferences my English (British) language is set to use the "ABC - Ext plus" keyboard layout. I do not have the British or US keyboard layouts in my System Preferences list of input sources. Whenever Nisus Writer...

Re: Hiding invisible table gridlines

Well, I could do but I don't want to. Being able to show/hide table guidelines is a fairly normal feature, available in e.g. Word, Mellel, etc. A nice-to-have not a necessity, of course, but if it could be added that would be awesome.

Re: Hiding invisible table gridlines

I'm working on a document that is almost entirely a table, and so the guidelines never disappear because the cursor is never out of the table. I have cell borders/gridlines set up for the cell boundaries where I want to see gridlines, and the guidelines just clutter up the display and make it harder...
